Element Description

The Related URLs element provides access to resources related to a collection. The Related URL may also link to data access points, as well as relevant tools and services. 

Note: This wiki page pertains to Related URLs in collection level metadata. For guidance on Related URLs in granule level metadata, please see the RelatedURLs (GRANULES) wiki page.

Best Practices

The Related URLs metadata element allows for the linkage of a metadata record to external resources or locations on the web. When used properly, this element allows users to quickly and easily access data, as well as access relevant services and information about the data. Related URLs at the collection level should point to:

  • A data access location
  • A landing page for the associated dataset
  • Any relevant services provided for the data (if applicable) such as: Web Map Services (WMS), OPeNDAP, THREDDS, Web Map Tile Services (WMTS), Web Coverage Services (WCS), etc.
  • A user's guide and/or comparable documentation which provides important information about how to use the data 
  • The project home page
  • Relevant software packages
  • Relevant online data tools
  • Relevant PI documentation
  • Read-Me files
  • Data citation policies
  • Algorithm Theoretical Basis Document (ATBD)
  • OpenSearch Description Document (OSDD) links
  • Any other documentation directly related to the dataset (examples include: data recipes, micro articles, product quality assessment documentation, important announcements, documentation on dataset anomalies, etc.)  

There are two special sub-sections within Related URLs. These include the GET DATA and the USE SERVICE API sub-elements. A separate wiki page with full details has been developed for each of these sub-sections:

Related URLs (GET DATA)

Related URLs (USE SERVICE API)

The details on this wiki page are for general Related URL guidance and do not include any of the GET DATA or USE SERVICE API sub-elements. 

Several of the elements within the Related URLs section of the metadata serve to properly identify the purpose of the link. These identifying elements include:

URL Content Type: The URL Content Type is a keyword which, at a high level, describes the content of a link. This is a controlled vocabulary field maintained as an enumeration list within the UMM-Common schema with the following options: "CollectionURL", "PublicationURL", "DataCenterURL", "DistributionURL", "DataContactURL", "VisualizationURL". The URL Content Type helps specify how the URL will be displayed in the Earthdata Search Client.   

URL Type: The URL Type is a keyword which specifies the content of a link. URL Type keywords are maintained in the Keyword Management System (KMS). A list of valid URL Type keywords can be found here:  https://gcmd.earthdata.nasa.gov/kms/concepts/concept_scheme/rucontenttype?format=csv

Note that the keyword list does not include the upper level URL Content Type keywords (specified above & maintained in the UMM schema). Please see the diagram below for details on the relationship between URL Content Type keywords and URL Type keywords.  

URL Subtype: The URL Subtype is a keyword which further specifies the content of a link. Together, the URL Type and Subtype keywords create a keyword hierarchy which is used to identify the URL. Providing a Subtype is optional, but should be used when applicable. The URL Subtype keywords are maintained in the Keyword Management System (KMS). A list of valid URL Subtype keywords can be found here: https://gcmd.earthdata.nasa.gov/kms/concepts/concept_scheme/rucontenttype?format=csv

Description: While not required, it is highly recommended that a description be provided for each URL provided in the metadata. The description should be kept brief and explain where the link navigates and the type of information it contains. Descriptions should be unique to the link. While descriptions can be repeated for the same type of URL across different metadata records, it is generally advised that the same description not be repeated within the same metadata record. i.e. the description should be used to further differentiate two URLs with the same URL Type and Subtype. 


Examples:

URL: https://daac.ornl.gov/ACTAMERICA/guides/ACTAMERICA-PICARRO_Ground.html

URL Content Type: PublicationURL

URL Type: VIEW RELATED INFORMATION

URL Subtype: USER'S GUIDE

Description: The guide document contains detailed information about the dataset.


URL: https://ghrc.nsstc.nasa.gov/home/micro-articles/lake-effect-snow

URL Content Type: PublicationURL

URL Type: VIEW RELATED INFORMATION

URL Subtype: MICRO ARTICLE

Description: Learn about how AMSR-2 data can be used to study lake effect snow in this micro article. 


Please see the below diagram for the full relationship between URL Content Type, Type, and Subtype keywords:

Metadata Validation and QA/QC

All metadata entering the CMR goes through the below process to ensure metadata quality requirements are met. All records undergo CMR validation before entering the system. The process of QA/QC is slightly different for NASA and non-NASA data providers. Non-NASA providers include interagency and international data providers and are referred to as the International Directory Network (IDN).

Please see the expandable sections below for flowchart details.


  • Manual Review
    • Identify errors, discrepancies or omissions.
    • Confirm that the URLs link to the appropriate web pages.
  • Automated Review
    • Check that the field has been populated.
    • Check that the URL_Content_Type field is populated with a valid value from KMS.
    • Check for potential broken links.
    • Check that the URL is formatted correctly.
    • Check that the field length of Description is not greater than 12,000 characters.
    • Check that the field length of URL is not greater than 1,024 characters.
  • Checks to see that the URL value is a syntactically valid URL.
  • Checks to see if a description is present.
  • Validates that the RelatedUrl/Type and Subtype values correspond to the correct value in the URLContentType element.
  • Validates that the object types of GET DATA and GET SERVICE are only used with Distribution URLs.

ARC Priority Matrix

Priority CategorizationJustification

Red = High Priority Finding

This element is categorized as highest priority when:

  • No Related URLs are provided.
  • The URL provided is broken.
  • The URL provided is incorrect/unrelated to the associated dataset.
  • The URL Type or Subtype provided does not accurately describe the link (i.e. the link is mislabeled).
  • The URL Type or Subtype provided does not align with the KMS.
    • The Type or Subtype does not exist in the KMS.
    • The Type or Subtype is placed in the incorrect position of the hierarchy (e.g. GET DATA should not be provided in the Subtype field, because it is categorized as a Type keyword in the KMS).
    • There is an invalid Type/Subtype relationship (e.g. Type: GET DATA, Subtype: USER'S GUIDE, is not a valid combination in the KMS).
  • The URL links to an FTP server (this only applies to NASA EOSDIS metadata).

Yellow = Medium Priority Finding

This element is categorized as medium priority when:

  • A URL is provided but the 'Description' element is left blank. It is highly recommended that a description be provided for each URL.
  • If a recommendation is made to add a new URL to the metadata, there will be accompanying yellow recommendations to add the appropriate URLContentType/URLType/Subtype/Description elements.
    • Note: These recommendations are blue at the granule level since the schema does not require Related URLs at the granule level. 
  • A recommendation is made to change a valid URL Type or Subtype keyword for purposes of consistency with other similar metadata records.

Blue = Low Priority Finding

This element is categorized as low priority when:

  • The 'Description' element is identical for multiple URLs. It is recommended that a unique description be provided for each link. 
  • A URL is provided via http when https is available.
  • The URL provided in the metadata re-directs. It is recommended that the most current link always be provided.
  • If a URL with Type "USE SERVICE API" is present, but no mime type is provided, a blue recommendation will be made to add a mime type for the service URL. 
  • If a recommendation is made to add a new "USE SERVICE API" URL to the metadata, there will be an accompanying blue recommendation to add a mime type for the service URL. 

Green = No Findings/Issues

The element is provided and follows all applicable criteria specified in the best practices section above.

ARC Automated Checks

ARC uses the pyQuARC library for automated metadata checks. Please see the pyQuARC GitHub for more information.
